————————— The Clans —————————
Scavengers // Half-lives // Naturalists
Scavengers – Their dependance on machinery and motors means they have to be hardwearing. Reclaimed materials of all kinds including metal, leather and plastic are their only source of clothing. The Scavengers are creative, tough and ensure their unruly existence is noticed.
Half lives – These desert nomads dress completely in white, also painting their skin and hair to avoid being found by their rivals. Their dark makeup can give them an almost skeletal appearance which marries with their bleak existence. Music is their only solace.
Naturalist – Holding onto the fading ecological presence on the planet, the naturalists seek to preserve whatever natural life there is left. They’re distinguished by their vibrant colours and magical auras. The are usually found creating, educating and instilling good-will in their elvish homes.
